Brian Dozer, 34, once a top-ranked second baseman in the league, announced his retirement at a young age 파워볼사이트
Dozer announced on February 19 (Korea time) that he would end his career after the last season. Dozer has been without his team since late August last year.
“Dozer, who made his debut with the Minnesota Twins in 2012, was well-received as a second baseman with both offense and defense.” He hit 20 home runs for six consecutive years from 2014 to 2019, and won the Gold Glove once. In 2019, he won the World Series ring with the Washington Nationals.
In 2016, he hit 42 home runs, showing a huge home run pace. This was the third-largest homerun in the American League that year, following Mark Trumbo (47 home runs) and Nelson Cruz (43 home runs). It was also the record for the most home runs in a single season for a second baseman, which was tied with Rogers Hornsby in 1922.
However, due to a knee injury in 2018, Dozer’s career began to decline slightly. Last year, he played for the San Diego Padres and the New York Mets, but only had two hits in 15 at-bats in seven games, and eventually suffered humiliation during the season.
Minnesota, where Dozer spent his heyday, also said, “Thank you for the memories with us” on the club’s SNS when he heard the news of his retirement was heard.
